You're right.  repo is listed in the documentation here:

For my purposes, I use "revisor" to compose an installation repository 
suitable for HTTP installs and keep that on my laptop.  I PXE boot new 
servers from a direct connection and perform the installation thusly.  I 
suppose with "repo" I could, instead, use a proxy server with the cached 
installation files and avoid setting up revisor.
